In this action, EPA proposed to amend its consolidated permit regulations to provide a variance from the requirement that owners of hazardous waste management facilities, as well as operators, must sign the hazardous waste permit application. These proposed amendments also provide an alternate certification that owners may use when signing hazardous waste permit documents, when the owner and operator are not the same person.
This proposal also constitutes a tentative decision to grant a rulemaking petition filed jointly by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Interior (DOI). The petition requests that EPA revise the certification statement required of a state or federal agency when it owns but does not operate a hazardous waste management facility.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
